The boyf and I have been discussing marriage and we’ve been scouring the internet looking for the perfect ring. At first I thought I wanted the traditional diamond, but I quickly found the stereotypical colorless design to be too boring for my personal taste. (No offense to diamond ladies, I personally just need a little warmth!) It wasn’t until today that I discovered a morganite engagement ring. It was love at first sight! I absolutely adore the peachy-pink color and especially love the way it looks set in rose gold. (I’ve always been a rose gold fan, but it doesn’t suit diamonds!) This is the ring I have my heart set on:
I find the antique design to be the perfect choice for me: classy but with character. But I wanted to see other morganite e-rings! Please post pics!

princesspayton: I don’t have one but I know many bees do and they’re beautiful rings. I just wanted to say that ring you picked is gorgeous!!!!!

There are plenty of bees with morganite rings that will be chiming in soon I’m sure. Before you take the plunge and purchase this ring, do some research on morganite and decide if it’s right for you. Morganite can scratch over time and probably isn’t the best stone for an engagement ring if you plan on wearing it daily. There are other stones that have this color and are better suited for daily wear like peach pink Sappire and barely pink moissanite sold by Joseph shubachs. It’s a gorgeous ring though! Goodluck and welcome to the bee!

I don’t have a morganite, but I’d love one!
I posted this on another thread, and then another bee posted the second one. both can be found on Etsy:

<div>mrssloan2013 I undestand morganite is a weaker stone and I’ve heard mixed reviews on it as an engagement ring choice due to everyday wearability. It’s worth mentioning however that the stone isn’t set very high and would therefore be relatively well-protected by it’s setting. Here’s a pic for reference:</div>

I have a beautifulthree stone morganite RHR and was warned by jeweler that: a) the stone is a bt fragile and can crack/chip rather easily and b)the stone is subject to fading if exposed to chemicals like strong detergents or strong sunlight.

I have a morganite engagement ring and I have had no issues with durability. I don’t wear it when I’m gardening or cleaning but other than that I wear it all the time!

princesspayton: I’m not a fan of halos, but in this case I think it looks fantastic on that ring. Beautiful!

Willow90: It’s funny, I’m not particularly keen on diamonds with halos, but for some reason this halo-ed morganite is every kind of perfect to me!

princesspayton: I was just making sure you knew, it sounds like you really love this ring. So as long as your aware that it needs some special care then i think you should go for it!

I love my morganite! I had some reservations about the hardness/durability factor but the stone itself was not so expensive that I would have an issue with replacing it later if need be. I say just go with your gut and get what you love! Btw I love the setting you picked out…it’s very feminine and pretty!

That setting is beautiful! I was in the same boat, diamonds are gorgeous but I wanted some color and uniqueness. I got my morganite ring off etsy and I couldn’t be happier with it! The shop name is PenelliBelle, she has lots of unique gemstone rings and very easy to customize designs with her! Anyways, here’s some pictures

Hi! Congrats on your upcoming engagement. As you can tell from my username, I love morganite. When my now-hub and I got engaged, we couldn’t afford a diamond ring. I did some research and fell in LOVE with morganite. It is stunning. I haven’t had any problems with chipping, but I take it off to clean, shower, sleep, or exercise. My main problem is this ring gets dirty so SO fast. I have to wash it every day or every other day. It also doesn’t sparkle very much, which I really like sparkle in my jewelry. The ring and setting you chose are gorgeous, but I would do some serious research on morganites before you commit. My ring was always going to be a stand-in, so it is okay for now, but if this is your forever ring you may want to reconsider. I am getting my forever-ring (a diamond) in December and I have to admit I won’t be sad to retire my morganite to a RHR.
If you’re loving the light pink shade I would recommend looking into pink/peach sapphires or maybe even a pink moissanite.

Congrats on your engagement! I totally get where you are coming from and I am also in love with morganite or pink emerald as it is known. It is a stuning stone, but it does take work and care to keep it clean. Hot soapy water soak and a little brush…dry out excess water and voila! I don’t mind the maintenance becuase to me it is well worth it. Plus I love everything clean so it is part of my picky behavior LOL. I don’t like moissy becuase it is not natural, and the pink is too strong, but that is just me. I got mine a 2ct Emerald Cut from Etsy a store called In the Ice Box, her name is Amy.. I highly recomend her. https://www.facebook.com/InTheIceBox Good luck and show is what you finally got. 🙂
